Need not tell Tour Ladifliips, that fince my At- 
tendance on His late MAJESTY (my moft 
Gracious Majier) lhave negleSledthe exercise 
of my Frofefiton. Tet , to debarr Idleneffe 
(which ^without vanity i may fay y I was never 
pafiionatly in love with) I have made fame 
Compofitions, which now I refolve topubUfh 
to the World. What Grounds and Motives 
lead me to phis Publication , 1 conceive not fo 
proper for your Ladijhips notice , having else- 
where told it to the Reader. But no foovti * 
thought ofmahjng theft Public^ than of infcribing them to Tour Ladifliips, 
wofi of them being Composed when I was employed by Tour ever Honour d Pa- 
rents to attend Tour Ladi&ipp s Education in Mufick j who (as in other Accont- 
plifhments fit for Perfons of Tour Quality) excetfd mofi Ladies , eftecially in 
Vocall Mufick^ wherinTouwere fo abfolhte , that Tou gave Life and Honour 
to all I fet and taught Teu ; and that with more Vnderjlanding than a new Ge- 
neration pretending to Shjl (I dare fay ) are Capable of. J could therefore do no- 
thing more becomming my Gratitude than a Dedication of Thefe (fo much Tour 
own) to both Tour Ladifliips j and to manifeji thai Honour I bear to the Memory 
ofTour deceafed Farents y wh&fe Favors it is impoffible fbould ever be forgotten by

PSfSZnSaSaSa ooq ^I T U eape to fay I have ken much import un'd, by Perfons of ®u.ility , to 

Publifh my Compofitions : But though I could plead it (and without 
Vain Pretenfions )yet now I fballwaveit. Nor was I drawn to it by any 
little thoughts of private Gain ; though men of my Regions (as the 
World now goes ) are jujlly prefum 'd not to overflow ; and perhaps the 
matter will not reach that value, let the Stationer look to that, who him- 
felfe hath undergone the charge and T rouble of the whole Imprejfton ; 
who yet (by his favour ) hath lately made told to print , in one Book, above 
twenty of my Songs, whereof I had no knowledge till his Book was in the 
Prejje ; and it feems he found thofe fo acceptable that he is ready for 
more, "therefore now the Slueflion ts not, nhetheror no my Compofi- 
tions fhall be Publick, but whether they foall come forth from me , or from fome other hand ; and 
■which of the two is likelieft to afford the true correB C°p* es 3 1 leave others to judge. In this Book J 
reprint none that were publifh' d in the former , or ever in print before. I could tell ye alfo , I 
have often found many of mine that have walkt abroad in other mens names ; how they came to lofe 
their Relations and be Anabaptiz'd, I think not worth examining. Only I foall fay, that fome who 
f§ adopted and owned my Songs had greater kindneffe for the Children than for the Father : elfe 
furt they bad not beftow d fome other late Ayr es ( which themf elves could not own ) upon Forrainers 
and Strangers, Jbec aufe I compos'd them to Italian and Spanifh words. I fbould think fuch an Inju- 
ry an unfeafenable piece of Jnjuflice,Jince now we live infofullen an tAge,that our Profeffonit Jelfe 
hath loft its Incouragement. But wife men have obfervd our Generation fo giddy, that whatfoever 
is Native ( be it never fo excellent ) mufl lofe its ta(ie, bee aufe themf elves haze loft theirs. Fey my 
part, J profejfe ( and (uch as know me can bear me witneffe ) I defire to render every man his due % 
whether Strangers or N tives. I acknowledge the Ita 1 ians the greatefi Afaflers of Mufick , but yet 
not all. And( without depreffmgthe Honour of other Countries ) I may fay our own Nation hath tad 
and yet hath as able Mufitians as any in Europe ; and many now living ( whofe names I forbear) 
are excellent both for theVoyce and Inflruments. But as in CMuftck the Unifon and Diapafori 
are thefweetefl of all Chords, yet a Second and a Seventh, which ft and next to them , are more 
Difcordant from them than any other Notes [in all the Scale: So to Muficians , a man's 
next Neighbour is the fartbefl from htm , and none give fo harfb a Report of the Englilh 
as the Englifh themf elves, we fhould not thi Mufick any granger to this ifland , fince our 
Anceflors tell tn that the Britains had Mficians before they had Books ; and the Romans 
that invaded us ( who were not too forward to magnifie other Nations ) confejje what power 
the Druids and Bards had over the Peoples affeftions by recording in Songs the Deeds of Heroick 
Spirits, their very Laws dWReligion being fung in Tunes, and fo(wtthout Letters ) tranfmitted 
to Poflertty ; wherein it feems they were fo dexterous, that thetr Neighbours out of Gaul came hither 
to learn it. How their Succeffors held it up I know not : But King Henry the Eight did much ad- 
Vance it, efpecially in the former part of his Reign . when his minde was more intent upon Arts and 
Sciences,at which time he invited all the greatefi Maflers out of Italy and other Countries, and Htm- 
felfgaVe example by Corapofing with his own hand two inttre Services, which were often fung in 
his chappell , as the Lord Herbc rt ofChcrbury ( it ho writ his Life ) hath left upon Record, Since 
whofe time it profptt 'd much in the Reign of Jgueen Elizabeth, King James , and His late N^aje- 
dy.f confejse the Italian Language may have fome advantage by being better fmcoth' d aWvowcll'd 
for Mufick , which I found by many Songs which I fet Italian words ; and our Englifh feems a 


little over- cloggd with Confonants^W that's much the Compofer's fault j whoby judicious fettin^ 
and riq\n tuning the words may make it fmooth enough. And fince our palates are fo much af ter 
Novelties, I defir'd to try the Greek,having never feen any thing Set in that Language by our own 
Muficians or Strangers-, and (by Compofing/o/Hf o/Anacreon's Odes ) I found the Greek Tongue 
full as good as any for Mufick , and in fome particulars fleeter than the La cine, 
or thofe CModerne ones that defended from Latine. / never lov'd to Set or fing words 
which I do not underhand; and where 1 cannot , / defir'd help of others who were able to 
interpret. But this present Generation is fo fated with what's Native, that nothing takes their eare 
but what's fung in a Language which (commonly) they underhand as little as they do the Utfufick. 
tAnd to make them a little fenjible of this ridtculom humour, I took a Table or Index of old Italian 
Songs (for one, two, and three VoyCes) and thirlndex (which read together made a Jlrange med- 
ley of Non-fence) I jet to a varyed Ayre, and gave out that it came front Italy, whereby it hath paf- 
fed for a rare Italian Song. This very Song I have now here printed. And if this Firfi Book fball 
find acceptance, I intend yearly to publifh the like ; for I conjefs I have afufficient Stock lying by me 
{and fball compofe more) having had the Honour to Set the Verfes of the mofl arid chief eft Poets of 
our Times. Ai for thofe Copies of Verfes in this Book , I have rendred their Names who made 
them, from whofe hands I received them. Thefe Reafons(with fome other not here mentioned) drew 
me forth to this Publication 3 which ifreceiv'dwith the fame heart that J offer it 3 will be further 
Encouragement for

As when in open aire we blow

So in your Ayres our Numbers dre/l

Our Pajfions to tnemf elves commend,

To his Honourd F. Mr. B S^KI L AWES, 
on his sJyres and Dialogues. 

Hofe happy few who apprehend thy flight, 
Ever above the cloud,yet ftill in fight, 
Cannot by all their Numbers and Addrtfje 
Swell or advance thy praifes , but confrjje. 
For thou art fix'd beyond the Power of Fate, 
Since nothing that is Mortal can Create. 
And is it pofsible that thou jbtuld'ft dye 
who can ft beftow fuch Immortality $ 

I have not fought the Rules by which yee try 
when a Chord's broke, or folds in Harmony 5 
But I am fure Thou hafi a Soul within 
As if created for a Cherubin ; 
Brim full of Candour and wife Innocence, 
And is not Mufick a Ref ultance thence I 
Far fure the blunt-bill 'd Swan's firft fame to fing 
Sprung from the motion of her fpotlefs wing. 

Butfole Integrity winns not the Caufe, 
For then each hone ft man would be a L A W E S: 
Thou haft deep Iudgement, Phanfie, and hiqh Sence 9 
Old and newWit,fteady Experience ; 
A Soul unbrib'd by any thing but Fame, 
Cubing to get nought but a good great Name. 
Hence all thy bytes flow pure and unconfin'd, 
Blown by no Mercenary Lapland wind, 
No ftoln or plundered phanftes, but born free, 
And fo tranfmitted to Pofteritie, 
Which never fhall their well-grown Honor blaft, 
Since they have Thy, that's the be ft, Iudgement paft a 

Tet Some, whoforc'd t' admire Thee, muft repine 
That all Theirs are out-done by thy Each Line 5 
The Sencefo humour d, and thofe Humour s hit, 
Will call them aBs ofFortune, not of Wit 5 
Hoping their want of Skill may be thy Brand 
'Caufe they have not the Luck to Under ft and 5 
Cry up the Words to cry Thee down, andfweare 
Thou fett'ft more Sence then they can meet elfewhere^ 
Concluding coiAdthemf elves fuch Verfes fkow 
They could produce fuch Compofitions too. 

But is't thy fault if the great witts whole guirt 
Before all Others ftill prefer Thy Lyre I 
They tafted All, and Thine among the reft, 
But then return d to Thee, * caufe Beft was Beft. 
Bid fuch attach Thy old Anacreon's Greek, 
where theleaft Accent will coft Them a week, 
Six Months a Verfe, and that Verfe tun'dandfcannrd 
(Though ftort) twelve Tears, an Age to Underftand : 
44 thy Lute, like th'laft Trump,hath rais'd His Head, 
who, ere the Grcecian Empire born, was dead. 

Then let all Poetts bring all Verfe, which They 
May on thy Desk as on an Altar lay, 
i-riere kindled ly that Touch thy Hand hath given, 
'Twill climb (whence Mufick firft came down ) to Heaven.

To his muck honour'd F. M r « HS^JRJ 
LAIV6S, on his Book of aAjra. 

Ather of Numbers, who haft fttf thought fit 
To tune thy felfe, and then Set others wit • 
Forgive my Zeale, who with my Sprig ofBayei 
Do crowd into the Chorus of thy Pratfe, 
For Silence were, when LAW E S u nam'd, a wrong, 
The SubjeB and the Mafier of aM Song , 
who ner doft dive for Pebbles, undermine 
Mountains to make old rujly Iron fljine : 
But haft made Great things Greater, do' ft diftenfe 
Luftre to wit, by adding Sence to Sence, 
For Pajfms are not Pajjions, 'till they be 
Rais'd to that height, which they expe8 from Thee \ 
And all this is thy f dfe ; Thy Time's not grown 
Broader by putting on a Cap or Gown ; 
who like thofe Jockies that do often fell 
An old worn Jade, becaufe he's {addled well • 
No ; Thou can (I humour all that wit can teach, 
which thofe that are but Note-men cannot reach : 
Thou 'rt all fo fit, thatfome have pafs'd their Votes, 
Thy Notes beget the words, not Words thy Notes. 


To my ever honoured Friend 5c Father,Mr. FISJ^RY 
L AfVES* ©n his Book of iJjres and Dialogues. 

Ather of Mufick and Mufitians too. 
And Father of the Mufes, All's thy due : 
For not a drop that flows from Helicon 
But Ayr'd by thee grows freight into a Song. 
So as when Light about the world was fipead, 
%All kind of Colours, Blacky white, Green, and Red, 
Soon mixt with Sui fames, and grew to be 
Flants,Graffe,andFlowrs,which Alfj ^Harmonyj 

Thou mak'ft the Grave and Light together chime, 

Moth joyntly dance,yet keep their own true time ; 

The winning Dorick, that beft laves the Harp; 

The Phrygian, thats as fweet, though far more fbarp i 

The brisk lor,kk,fober Lydian Mood, 

which every ear e fucks in, and cryes, 'tit good : 

Thou hitt'ft them aU ; their Spirit, Tone, fWPaufe, 

Have aU confbir'd to meet and honour LAWES, 

Nonprinting Comma, Colon, halfefo weB 

tenders the Breath of Senfe ; they cannot tell 

The juft Proportion how each word jhould go, 

To rife And fai, runfwiftly or march flow ; 

Thou fhew'ft 'tis Mufick only muft do thk y 

which as thou handle f it can never mifs 5 

All may be Sung or Read, which thou haft dreft, 

Both are the fame,fave that the S inging's beft. 

Thy Mufe can make this fad, raife that to Life, 

Inflaming one^fmoothing downth' others Strife^ 

Meer words, when meafur'd beft, are Words alone 3 

Till quick ned by their near eft Friend a T we : 

And then, when S enfe and perfeB Concords meet , 

Though th' Story bitter be, Tunes make it fweet : 

Thy Ariadne's Grief 'sfo fitly jhown 

As bring's tu Pleafurejfow her[addeft Groan. 

And aU this is thine own, thy true-born Heir 5 

Norftoln at home, nor Forrain far-fetcht Ware 

Made good by Mountebanks, who loud muft cry 

Tillfome believe, and do as dearly buy ; 

which when they've try'd, not better nor yet more 

They find, than what does grow at their own door. 

For when fuch Mountains fwell with mighty Birth, 

wee findfome poor fmall petty thing, creep forth. 

But I'm too [bort to freak thee, I've no Praife 

To give, but what I gather from thy Bayes : 

My narrow Hive sfupply'd from thy full Flow'r, 

Nor does thy Ocean Praife know Bank or Shoar ; 

ret this I dare atteft, that who fh ail look 

And underhand as well as read thy Book 

Muft fay that here both Wit and Mufick meet • 

Like the great Giant's Riddle Strong and Sweet.' 


TO his Honour'd Friend, Mr. Henry Lawef, upon his Book of %4jre$ 
Uftck thou Soul ofVerfe, gently inftire 

My unturid Phanfie withfomejprightly Ayre> 
'T<s ptteft now that I thy ayd require 

while I to fing thee and thy Lawcs prepare : 
For the high Raptures of a lofty jlrain 
Charm equall with the Bom's Aonian« 

'Tveere in me rudenefs, not to blazon forth 
(Father in Mufick) thy dtferved praife, 
who oft have been, to witnefs thy rare worth, 
A ravifh't hearer of thy skiljull Lay's. 

Thy Lay's that wont to lend a f oaring wing, 
And to my tardy Mufe frety ardour bring, 
while brighteft Dames, thefplendour of the Court, 

j!iemfelves a filent Mufick to the Eye, 
maid oft to hear thyfolemn Ayrcs refort, 
Making thereby a double Harmony : 

'TIS hard to judge which adds the mojl delight, 
Toth' Eare thy Charms, or theirs unto t^e Sight, 

But this is fure, WStrada's Nightingale 

Heard thef oft murmurs of thy Ay ry Lute, * 
She doubting left her own fweet Voyce fhouldfail d 
To hear thyjweeter Ayres, had quite been mute. 
Such Vertue dwels in Harmony divine 
( Admired L AWES) and above all in thioe\ 

The Dorick Sage^ and the mild Lydian, 
The fad Laconick unto wars exciting, 
Th' Aeolian Crave, the Phrygian mournfuUflram, 
Thefmoothjonick carelefly delighting, 

There calmly meet, and clear fully agr, /, 
Various tbemf elves, to make one Symphony, 

if we longfince could boaft thy pur eft vain, 

More then old Greece the Khodopfian Lyre, 
Or Latian Bowres of late Marenzo's flrain, 

How much mufi our applauf • advance thee higher I 
when thy yet more harmoniow birth fh all bring 
To m new Joyes, new Pleafures to the Spring. 

The Woods wild Songsters, wonder will fur prize 

Hearing the f veet Art of thy well tun d Notes, 
what new unwonted chime I 'tis that outvies 
The Native fweet nefs of their liquid throat s^ 
which while in vain they jirive to Simulate 
Anothers Mufick's JDuell they I create. 
iv\:ethtr pure Anthems fill the f acred J$uire, 

Or Lady's chambers the Lute's trembling voice. 
Or Rurall Song's the Country Swains admire, 
Thy large Invention fliU affords m choice j 
'T (S to thy Skill, that we indebted are, 
What ever Mufick hath of neat and rare. 
T o thee the choyceft Witts of 'England owe 

The Life of their fam'd Verfc, thatne'r fhall dye] 
For thou haft made their rich conceits to flow 
In flreams more rich to lafiing memory, 

Such Mufick needs mujtfleal our fouls away, 

where Voice and Verfe do meet, where Love and 'Phanfie play.

But Love, that hath been long defpii'd, 
And made the Baud to others truft, 

Finding his Deity furpriz'd, 

And chang'd into degenerate Luft, 

Sammon'd up all his ftrength and power, 
Making her face his Magazine, 

Where Virtue's grace, and Beauty's flowtf 
Heplac'd his Godhead to redeem. 

So that too late (alas) I finde 

No fteeled Armour is of proof, 
Nor can the beft refolved minde 

Refift her Beauty and her Youth.

See the bright Pair, how amiably kind, 
As if their Souls were but this Morning joyft'd :

Then Let's, &c 

Let no bold Forraign noife their Peace remove, 
Since nothing's ftrong enough to fhake their Love,' 
Blefle Him in Her's, Her in His Arms, 
From fuddain (true or fall") Alarms ; 
Let ev'ry Year fill up a fcore, 
Born to be One, but to Make more :

To the Right Honourable 

The Lord COL RAN E. 

Had fome thoughts to forbear in this kind any far- 
ther Publication: but though my Reafons were 
ftrong enough for my felf , they were riot able to 
conquer others ^ who (for all I could fay) expect 
my Promifc to give them yet more of my Comf op- 
tions. I confefs I have no fear of being exhaufted : 
but though I am not tired, it became me to doubt I 
m ight tire others whereof fince I find there is lefs 
danger, Hhall thankfully comply with the Publick 
Defire. And I wifti thofe, who fo warmly pretend 
the Common Benefit, would tread the fame path, 
and not take upon them to mend the World, till 
they have fome Call to it. This my Profefiion (as 
well as others) may fairly complain of ; for none 
judge fo fowerly on us and our labours , as they who were never born to be Muficians, 
For my own part, I fend not thefe abroad to get a Name ; Were that my Defigne ? I 
have other Compofttions, fitter for fuch as are Mafters in our Art, when the Seafon calls 
for them. My poor Talent never lay in a Napkin"; nor make I any precarious ufe of this 
Publication ; they were firft begotten to gratifie my friends, and are now as freely con- 
ferr'd upon Strangers.But were all this other wife,my chief and main Defign would go on, 
which is a Thirft I have to tell the World how abfolute a Votary I am to your Lord/hip* 
And were I a perfect ftranger to your favours,I could do no lefs, fince your excellent Un- 
derfhnding and great affection to this, as well as all other Arts and Sciences ,would claim 
it from mee. Therefore I intended to offer unto your Lcrdfhip fome of your own Conce- 
ptions tun'd by my Notes ; as alfo fome others written by that rare Gentleman Mr. Henry 
Hare, your Lordfhips moft hopefull Son, who eminently exprefles both your Lord/hip and 
yourBrother Mr.Hicholas Hare^vhote Memory is ftill precious among all ingenuous Souls* 
But thofe I preferve for a fairer opportunity , and in this Book prefent you with Others 
Poetry, efpecially of Doctor Hughes, who was Author of all thefe Single Ayes , and of 
many others, ftoln into the Prefs without my Confentas well as his. Such as they are I 
humbly bring them before your Lordjhip, as a fmall but Gratefull Teftimony of 


Your Lordfliips moft humble and 

moft faithful Servant

To his Honoured Friend Mr. H EN RT LAWES, 

Upon his Annual Book of A Y R E S. 

Rave Law e s ! 7 hou art Return d Again : the Sun 
And Tou do thus your Emulous Courjes Run. 
And whiles you both in different Orbes appear, 
He onely Makes-, but Thou dojl Crown the Tear. 
ThAt if the old Phtlofophy wert true* 
WhAt his Spent Fires could not, thy Lyre would dot; 
Make old T tme rigorous {till, confejftng more 
Thy FamdLayes now, then all his Beams before, 
Nature her [elf jhouldthus thy Learn d Aid crave, 
From whofe Stockt Brain all that we have, rve have. 
Whofe Yearly Spendings Shew, not waft thy Store , 
Who after Numerous Births can yet give more. 
Still whole-, Unfpent that when the Tear doth ceafe 
( As itgypt Nile'* ) We wait thy Next increase. 
Then High, and Rich as He Thou Flow ft : We fee 
What all elfe cannot, and what Thou can ft be. 
And ttll Wepafs the Spheres, mufl fill attend, 
To knoK what Height Mufick hath yet i ascend. 

For Thou Grafp ft all • We the rude Matter give, 
Thou into Verfe breath ft Soul, and bid 1 J} it Live. 
Fnduft it with that Plafttck Pow'r to Spring 
What Thou would Jl have it, This, That, any Thing. 
Dofl in thy Mould, our Wit new Shape, and Caft, 
Civ ft it New Salt, the Haut Gouft, and Rich Taft. 
Jt Lives with us, doth Flourijh in thy Ayre, 
Zornfrom our Brains, but Educated there. 
Things that from us flat and infipid flow , 
Vote d once by Thee, ftraight into Raptures grow. 
When from her Mtne Invention Fancy brings, 
Thy composition a New Fancy firings. 
Thus whiles all comes ExacJ, Watch' d, Humour d, Hit, 
Thy Ayre's Ingenuous, and makes Mufick Wit. 

Nor dofl Thcu, Nar row, only dwell among 
The Eafie Rhimes of thine own T tme, and T ongue : 
Thy Reaching, Vest' ring Soul doth Wit purfue 
Setting of Thorough all Languages, and all times too 5 
r ^ nbtchfome Twenty Ages fince firft grew, 
Thou Retrtv ft now, and we admire as New. 
Comparft and trift how th' Ancient Pipes will found, 
Mak Jl Old wit flronger by the New Rebound : 
Who are, and who are not, obliged bee, 
Poet, and Poetry it felfto thee. 
What She fuggefts comes a mtfhapen Birth , 
Till Thou ftep ft in, and thence ftnk ft Mufick forth. 

Admired Law e s I thy Happy Ayres have knit 
Ft em all Leagues 'twist Harmony and rvtt : 


fV hieh none but thofe thy Richer Robes will knowi 
When jhe keeps State, or would in T Humph go. 
We drink in Thou [and Pleafures from One Song, 
Which Charms us all, the Learned and the Throng. 
We are Tranfported, Loft ! thy Notes betray, 
Drop on the Senfe, and melt us quite away. 
And when we're Extaffdy Expiring, then 
Thy Next Note Wooes, and calls us back agen. 
At once Thou Steal' ft , and can ft invade us too, 
Straight Rouze thofe powers which were all Lodgd but now. 
Thou like fome Mighty Monarch doft controul, 
Di/pence, Rule, Work, and Reign ore all the Soul, 
Thou jhoot' ft New Beings : For we are no more , 
When we hear T hee, that which we were before. 
But as that Begger who in' s Raving Fits , 
Got Crowns and Scepters when he loft his Wits ; 
Curd, and bimfelf again, Griev'd ftraight to pajs 
Into that poor,Jhrunk Nothing that he was : 
So when thy Strains Feaft our low Fancies high, 
We Trample Earth, and Mounting, Knock the Sky. 
But when They ceafe, All Mourn that we have loft 
Thofe T ow'ring Thoughts our then Rapt Souls engrofs'd. 
Thou, like a Generall Influence, Sway ft in All, 
Doft T ouch the Mind, and her glad Motions call. 
Whiles We our Conftant Acclamations bring 
To the ftill New Choice Graces that Tou Sing. 

Thus do ft Thou Govern all ( Harmonious Soul! ) 
And through the Great whole Orbe of Muftck RowU 
Break ft from thy Self, Scatt'ring Day every where, 
Not leaving one Dark Part in all the Sphere. 
All Native, Genuine, and 'Unborr on id ft? -earns, 
The Sun and La v v e s know not to Owe their Beams. 
Who on the Wings Thou Imp' ft Verfe with, haft Spread 
Thy Fame far as the Roman Eagle fed. 
Thofe Judging Few who can Compare, admire, 
And find Thine Match the heft Italian Lyre-, 
Thou ftill St and ft High ; thy Rules fo True, Severe I 
All by thy Card, Thou by thine Own doft fteere. 
Like the Fir ft Mover, Uncontrol'd doft Move , 
( He which makes peace, T wnes, and Tunes all Above. ) 
"Even, and Juft as he : whiles all doth jhew 
What Harmony, that is, whatl^kw e s can do. 

Andfuch ! fo Full J fo Mighty is thy Vein, 
Thou haft fcarce Thought when all ftowes from thv Brain. 
As Things fir ft met in the Creation, All, 
Doth of it felf ftraight into Concord fall - 
Which iffuingfree as Springing Light from th' Morn, 
Shews Thee Mufician, like the Poet Bom. 
Tou T wo do Wing it ftill in Noble Flights, 
Strive, Stretch, Mount, Soar, Match, and vie Heights with Hei\ 
And we the while Admiring^ doubtfull ftand, 
Which Jhall at laft the Brave ft Place command. 

With Words and Ayres our Ears art doubly ftd, 

What ere thou fet'fi is at once Sung and je d. 

Thou dofl fill Apt) Complying Notes difyenfe, 

True to the Words, but truer to the fen fe. 

The Tunes Rehearfe : no Crowd of Cruets throngs 

And fufile all the Words out of the Song. 

But arefo fcatterd here, and there, fo fowne, 

It hath them all, and yet is vex d with None. 

Thy jewels with fuch Art are vlacd and worne, 

That they ner Cloud the part they jhou/d adorne. 

Thus doth thy F quail Skill not more delight, 

To do thy Self, then do the Poet Right. 

Thou Maim ft net him to come forth Conquerour, Thint, 

Steales none o'th Bullion when it adds the Com. 

No tedious, long, deciding tricks betray 

His fen fe-. and vapmr all his Words away. 

Tet when a Word comes fit i Efpouze a Grace. 

Thou marrifl both> and know ft the Rites-) and place. 

Then Fancy humour d fhews thegutlded Beam, 

That Glitt ring Plays, and Quavers on the Jlream. 

Both Clofe, and Kind as Life and Spirit fit, 

Thy Ay res fit 11 Quicken, never fiifie Wit. 

And as one Dram of Gold can ne'r be lofi, 

Though in a Thoufand Fires T ryd, Vex d^ and Forx'd y 

Difsolv d,mix d with all Elements, we fee, 

Expans d to In finite, what was will Bee. 

So with the fame Entirenefs Numbers do, 

From all thy Art full Compositions flow. 

Which though through all thy Flats and Sharps exprefs'd 

In thy Rich Notes, and various humours drefsd. 

Are fiill the fame : if any Change appear, 

Stamfdnow by Thee, thefr better than they were. 

When Words, Senfe, Tunes Embrace, fo Kifs, T wifl Hit, 

Thy whole Age hath not lofi One Grain of Wit. 

Go on Great Mafier of thy Art ! Strike dumb, 
And with thy Tones Calm the Tempefiuous Drum. 
Tune, Recolletf, Pleafe, and reform us Thine^ 
Ccme at once Mufick too, and Difcipline. 
Let thyfoft Notes invite us,fiide, and Steal, 
Rock this Frow'rd Age, and with their Balfam Heal. 
Shew all the Miracles thy voice can do, 
Our Orpheus and our i£fculapius too. 
And when thefe Revolutions make thy Shine 
Compleat, and Thou haft woave thy great Defigne : 
Hufh'd all our Noije, fpread Calms made allferene^ 
jdnd with thy Ayres at lafi fhut up the Seen: : 
All Done, Thoufhalt (though late, we hope) Remove, 
And change thy Mufick here for that Above. 
Where thou fhalt here how Saints their Anthems ftng, / 
Andfhalt thy Self another Anthem bring. 
Thou who didfi Tune the World, whiles Thou wcrt here, 
Shall take an Angels place, and Tune a Sphere.

Affe&ionfor 4 Lady he never farv. 
Now I find 'tis nought but Fate that makes us cither love or hate ; 

yet I have heard the wifer tell, Love onely doth with Beauty dwell ; and that the Eye the 


thief muft play,to (leal each others heart away. But 'tis not fo I find with me,for I love one I 

ne're did fee. 


There's a Divinity in Love, 
That doth infpire us from above ; 
Which needs no tutoring from the eyes, 
To make our hearts to Sympathize. 
Such Noble and Platonick fires, 
Will know no Object for defires : 
But Love's the good that dwels with thee, 
Although thy felf they ne're did fee. 


Thy foul, not this, or t'other part, 
Hath fent her Cupids to my heart ; 
And there like little Angels tell, 
What hidden vertues in thee dwell, 
Prompting my reafon to fuppofe 
Thy Shape's Angelicall like thofe; 
Which I ftiall pray I ne're may fee, 
Lc ft I mould more dittra&ed be. 

Freedom from Cbarmes. 

O, fair Inchantrefs! charm no more, but give thy fafcina- -tions ore - 

fince I have found a pow'rful Spel,that doth thy cunning Art excel; for when I think of thy dif- 

dain, I'm free from witchcraft, or from pain. 


When I was young and unbetray'd, 
All then was Oracle you faid ; 
So innocent I was of guile, 
I thought love dwelt in every fmile : 
But now that cloud of youth is fpent, 
I find you'r all but complement. 


Tie love no more, l ie learn to hate, 
I'le ftudy to equivocate , 
And all my pleafures now ftull be 
To cozen thofe would cozen me ; 
For Loves beft mufick runs ( I find ) 
On fickle changes of the mind.
